I AM EXTRA-ORDINARY

Exceptional

sarahmureithi

002Have you ever believed God for something so much, out of your human nature you feel like He, “the on-time God” has been held up somewhere by some traffic or jam as we call it in Kenya.

At times I forget that He does not operate in our human time frame, but I am also reminded that He is my very present help in time of any need. In fact He sticks closer than a brother!

So most of the time I am always reconciling His nature and my nature. The good book calls it, Renewal of Mind. When the 2 come together the miraculous happen. He happens to be extra and I happen to be ordinary, when we come together, we become, Extra-Ordinary. I am Extra-Ordinary

You could be delayed but you can NEVER be denied. With Him in you and by you, you become Extra-Ordinary!

Happy Thoughts

The scriptures says, “as a man thinks in his heart so is he”

Nothing just happens before first being just a simple thought. What do I mean?

You can never become anything that you have never thought of becoming. For example, you are a winner first in your thoughts, before you can become a winner to the world. You’re a failure first in your thoughts, before you manifested yourself as a failure to the world.

The beauty of this is that, no thought takes dominance of your mind without your approval. This means that for any thoughts whether good or bad to gain tenancy in your mind, you must first sign the go ahead approval of the same, consciously or otherwise. When these thoughts seek your approval for tenancy, you have the power to allow or reject! This happens to be the life defining moment in one’s life. To be or not to be. To be a winner or to be a failure. To be happy or to be moody. To be aggressive or to be passive. To be determined or to be lazy and so on. In other words, you are the C.E.O!!

Above all, there is one thought that I find myself choosing to give tenancy in my mind every single time I receive a request in my mind. That is; Happy Thoughts, just to choose to be HAPPY. I have discovered that this very thought affects my whole being without discrimination. It is like a direct injection to the other sub-thoughts.

In a world that is full of negativity, choosing to be HAPPY becomes a daily choice every hour. For you to succeed in remaining happy, you may need to preorder your happy thoughts. Trust me, it is required. At times, you may need to force your mind to accept your happy thoughts because most of the time, circumstances and conditions demands that your lose your sanity. The stress of the times we are living in, demands that you have to encourage yourself every minute to remain happy and full of joy.

But it amazes me that the Lord knew that this would require His intervention and so He already made a provision for it in His Word.” The joy of the Lord is my strength”. The source of my joy and happiness is from a constant God, who never changes, who does not suffer lack or want! With that said, I am assured that my joy and happiness is ever full in Him.

I have made this very practical in my life; to always speak these words into my mind until my mind knows nothing else but, “THE JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH”. I speak them anywhere and loudly, at home, place of work, while on the road, I mean anywhere and everywhere until my mind conforms and I remain a HAPPY AND JOYFULL WOMAN!

Be happy!000

Guess what I decided to forgive you, I refuse to be your prisoner

Many nights passed, but to me they weren’t any good nights, couldn’t sleep a flash. Stayed awake, staring into the space, like I was watching men walking on the moon. My mind disturbed and my heart in deep pain. I wondered how could the one I gave my heart to, tear it so bad, drop it so low without a wink in your eye, and crash it so bad, like ice crashed into a milk shake.

How I wanted to fall deeply asleep so bad, hoping that I would wake up out of this nightmare. But girlfriend, looks like I never received the memo, this is for real. Not a nightmare or Afro Cinema, but it is my real life more twisted than a nightmare or better still a Nigerian movie. It is My Real Life, playing before your very own eyes. Reality checks in!

Tired of explaining to trusted family and friends, seeking their opinion. Was getting tired of the sympathy and them saying how anyone could be so low!! Nothing or no one could give me the answer I was looking for, not even myself. Truth is, no amount of words could explain what had just happened. Not on the earth or in the heaven. None!

So I decided to change the script of my real life drama. I decided to remove myself from the equation; I decided to stop subscribing to the hurt, the drama and most of all, to you. In a moment of a minute, I decided that the script of my life deserve some, laughter from the deep wells of my belly, glitter in my eyes, sparkle on my gold plated teeth, fairly tale romance, holy ghost moments in the morning, praise and worship on Sundays, rhythm and blues as I sip my well brewed Kenyan tea before being taken into my dreamland. Yes, that and more..

You might be going through a hard moment of betray, trust broken and misused, Joy stolen from you. No peace of mind. The easiest path to choose is the path of despair, tears, revenge and seeking pity party.

But I challenge you to snap out of it! Choose to decide your destiny will be a happy one filled with joy, love and prosperity. I challenge you to rewrite the script of your Real Life Drama. Maybe you may have done that before, I encourage you to rewrite again and again and again. It is your damn life.

To crown it all, send this message to your betrayers: “Guess what, I decided to forgive you, I refuse to be your prisoner”

Yours Truly, S.A

Peace!

September shall be a month to Remember

It has been long since I wrote, but thank God, this September I have remembered to write.

It is September, it is the month of remembrance

We are in the ninth month of the year. See how far God has brought you.

In a human life cycle, 9 months represents many things:,

  1. Fruitfulness – Meaning a woman carry’s a baby in the womb for nine months and by 9 months that baby is grown enough to face this world alone.
  2. New beginnings – As soon as the mother travails, the bouncing baby comes forth signifying a new journey a new life.
  3. Completion/Delivery – Means completion of carrying and laboring for the baby, it is time to deliver.

To me, this is a significant month spiritually, it is a month of remembrance, a month to travail and bring forth the dream/vision into accomplishment. It represents a new dispensation, another dimension and a higher level.

It is time to travail  and bring forth. Don’t fold your hands now and say I have tried for 9 months, it is time for you to push and push until you see the manifestation. This is possible not by your strength, only by his His grace. What I can assure you is that GRACE will deliver. This is not the month to throw in the towel, it is the month to travail. Scriptures says, as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth. That is my portion. and so is your portion in Jesus Name.

I decree that September  is a month to Remember. You must fully deliver!

Fill My Cup Lord

With my gaze, sharply on Him, ever calm and in control. Never moved by anything but full of compassion. I say to myself, I just want to be just like you Lord, my Father.

No doubt, at times in life, I am at ease, calm, swinging to the rhythm of my music, and perfectly so. Nothing getting me off guard, always ready to attack and conquer.

But you see there are times, when the above is not so. One battle after another, everything screaming for my attention, yet I am spread to the limits. Plans failing, promises not being fulfilled. Pressure from every side, bills staring at me, dreams dwindling off my arm reach.

So I turn, to Him, who knows the end from the beginning, He never changes, always constant. My heart desires His character, to be just like Him. I am filled with a longing and a thirst that pepsi cola won’t quench.

He looks at me with so much compassion that throws me into a moment of tears streaming down my cheeks. With my eyes on Him, I lift my cup to Him. See my cup is full of things that are draining me. The pressure of life, my dreams, my friends, my busy schedule, you name it, am sure you have the same story, if not now, there before.

He starts pouring Himself into me. His Character i.e Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, immediately, His calmness becomes my story, His peace becomes my testimony. It starts running over, I mean overflow reaching to all that come near me..

I cry out, Fill my Cup Lord, I lift it up to You…has become my secret!

MANY CHANGES, MANY FACES

They say that a change is as good as rest! That’s statement is 100% true!

A change ushers in freshness, new levels of energy, new ideas, new people to your social circle, and new depths in one’s character and so on.

What they don’t tell you is that, a change can be uncomfortable, can cause you to be nervous, and also make you unsure of yourself and the direction you are headed to. But at the end of the day, changes are inevitable. Change is permanent.

But if you wish to lead a fruitful and impactful life, changes are important. If you are not willing to change, then I doubt if you will ever grow.

Bearing the above in my mind, then you are able to embrace change with a positive attitude. It could be a change in your marriage, relationship/friendships, a certain way of doing things, moving from city to another and at times, a change can mean cutting off things that tend to draw you back.

Having gone through enough changes in my life, I have come to realize that, sooner or later, you learn to dance the new dance to suit your new change, and as a matter of fact, you enjoy the rhythm more since you know where you are coming from. A change ushers in a new level of maturity in one’s walk of life.

The first steps maybe rather uncomfortable, you may miss some steps too, but just keep at it, eventually, you will pick up the beat and groove smoothly into life as you enter another season of your life.

How well do you deal with change in any area of your life? Please share with the world.
